PT: Has travel always been a passion? How did you make it your profession?
Shahrookh: Traveling has been my passion ever since childhood. Coming from a middle-class family, realising this dream was not easy. During my youth, I worked as an interior decorator and on small projects to save up money and fulfil my dreams. In 2000, during one of my life’s lowest phases, my wife introduced me to the travel profession, through one of her best friends in a reputed travel company. She hired me based on my performance post training. After that, I was sent to Europe as a Tour Manager and the rest is history!
PT: What does traveling mean to you? How does it help people?
Shahrookh: Honestly, to me it’s my bread and butter. Besides, it has provided me with international exposure and enriched my learning and interests as I meet different people, cultures, habits, eating preferences, etc. Personally, it boosts your confidence and your personality – it has changed me into a stronger and more confident person. It breaks you out of your comfort zone and empowers your ability to grow on so many fronts. I look forward to traveling to more parts of the world and further enrich my experiences and growth!
PT: Name some of the places you have visited and your favourite experience.
Shahrookh: Till date, I have explored over forty-one countries and two hundred cities globally, including USA, South Africa, Russia, China, Entire Europe (Northern Eastern Western Central), Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, UK (England Scotland Wales Northern Ireland), UAE, Qatar, Oman, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Turkey. Every country and every city has its own charm and beauty, but Croatia is literally a world apart!
